right here, right now. >> welcome to washington. i'm bret baier. even though they are the minority party, republicans figure prominently in president obama's healthcare reform message today. the president signaled a growing impatience with the g.o.p. amid continued talk that frustrated democrats may try to ram through legislation however they can. here is senior white house correspondent major garrett. >> in his first appearance on a radio talk show broadcast from the white house and in a town hall later with grassroots supporters, president obama accused republicans of plotting their return to power through the graveyard of healthcare reform. >> early on, a decision was made by the republican leadership that said, look, let's not give them a victory. maybe we can have a replay of 1993, '94 when clinton came in. he failed on healthcare and then we won in the midterm elections and got the majority. later when talking to organizing for america loyalists, mr. obama said three senate loyalists may help negotiate a healthcare deal but he won't wait much longer for results. >> we don't know ye
weapon. that's what the president of israel is saying in an interview with fox news bret baier. u.s. intelligence estimates that it's more like three years but the u.n.'s atomic watchdog reports iran is actually slowing down its nuclear program. jennifer griffin works the pentagon. she is there tonight. you have a copy of that report, right, jen? >> that's right. right here. in fact what they found and this is the first time in three years that the output of enriched uranium has slowed. there were 3 centrifuges fewer than there were in june. the mystery gets deeper. they don't know whether this is politically motivated or a technical glitch. shepard: the israelis say that's just not true, right. >> they are not buying it as you mentioned bret baier interviewed president sherri money perez. here is what he said. >> do you have any confidence in iaea -- stronger than institutions. institutions shouldn't lag behind the realities. >> and some worry, shep, that israel may go it alone militarily against iran. shepard: you know vice president cheney talked about the military option in hi
>> it can now cover the scent of blood. [laughter] bret: thank you for joining us. we will be back tomorrow. shepard: how bad is the budget deficit? the news is in. the health-care debate, tonight, the angry in america. [captioning made possible by fox news channel] captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- shepard: u.s. marines now on the move. they are looking to free a town from taliban forces. >> we are on the offensive. shepard: tonight, the video you will see only on fox. >> pushing back at to the health care town halls and why the aarp says they are not on board yet. the issues are so important, they are about the health of our parents, children, ourselves. across america, lawmakers have been holding town hall meetings to talk about to the health-care plan. they are trying to create a health care system for uninsured americans. a lot of people are fired up on this. we put people on location in colorado, california, maryland, iowa, new jersey. we have noticed something in common at many of these meetings, it seems that with passions and tempers running
medicare benefits. rnc chairman michael steele outlining the principles in an op ed. with me now is bret baier. nice to have you. there are taking advantage of this opportunity now that the president is on vacation. now the gop is getting in there jab of the day. -- their jab of the day. >> that is right. the rnc and michael steele really sees an opportunity here. there is a lot of concern here. looking at the polls in recent weeks on health care reform, and seniors and independent voters, even those who voted for president obama, are having increasing concerns about a number of things. not just the death panel talk. basically, that is funding for end of life discussions. michael steele writes -- other thing they are talking about our cuts in medicare, one proposed at $500 million. medicare is government-run, but it is also a program that is running out of money. experts believe that it will need an infusion of $2 billion just to stay insolvent. under the current plan there will be $500 billion cut from funding. this bill of rights is to tap into some of those concerns. trace: you have t
overhaul. it has never been used for health care reform. bret bair joins us now. we call it the nuclear option because, in essence, this is a civil war in the senate. clear battle lines have been drawn. the democrats on one side. the democrats on the other. that is the way it is. >> it is important to point out that republicans have used this numerous times before. for a massive package like health care reform that is more than 1/6 of the nation's economy, there are lots of people, both democrats and republicans who say they should not be used in this piece of legislation. we are still a number of steps away from that, if senate majority leader harry reid decides he wants to use reconciliation. you would have to get over a number of hurdles. it is not clear that the health- care bill can make it over those hurdles that have been set up in the legislative process. the top hurdle is the piece of legislation has to be paid for for five years and has to be a deficit neutral after that. as we have seen, that is not the case with what is on the table right now. trace: what about the political
questioners. we will watch john mccain and then talked to bret and bill about what is going on. trace: hot temperatures in arizona. a sentence this model to be caned. now, the judge made a critical decision. that is coming up. jane: we're learning more from cia documents about terror plot that have been foiled. that intensified this battle over how effective the cia interrogations program has been. brian has been looking at the documents. any surprises? >> the most important thing is the assessment of the unnamed person who wrote one document in 2003. his assessment was that the interrogations program had been an absolute success. the bottom line is that these documents will be scrutinized. there will be plenty of debate over whether the techniques were too harsh or whether interrogators went too far, and it is important to note that some information they got in those interrogations' broke up a big plot against the u.s. against allies. most of this has been reported over the past several years, but buried in the just-released documents are new details. there were al qaeda plans for 9/11-ty
of the fans. the last thing i want to tell you about, in wisconsin, remember how bret favre said he was ready to play football -- we just have confirmed that he is on his way, on a flight to the minnesota vikings. if all goes well in a perfect world, his agent says, he will sign. can you imagine having to walk across the border in viking country and see him where a viking uniform? where has the world on? jon: some pretty troubling passport camera from minneapolis. it is leading to an investigation. the tape shows daryl dinkins being pulled over for a traffic stop. a whole bunch of cops are punching and kicking him and even pulled out eight taser at one point. the police chief and minneapolis says there is a cause for concern, but they stopped short of saying what they did. he was pulled over why? >> he said he was at a stoplight. >> so they get out of the car, and declined is taken down and five other officers show up? >> that is right. it proceeded to punch and kick and elbow him. jon: i guess the question is, what did he say or do? for some time, they said, it does look good, but some time
